theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2005
On tap at the restaurant. Pale yellow and thin white head. Easy to drink, but watery in general. Very plain flavor that is short-lived. Their dark beer isn’t much better, and the food costs twice what you’d pay in any other pub in the city. A complete tourist trap.

Hazy pale yellow, thin white creamy head. Hoppy nose with some sweetness. Malty, hoppy flavour with notes of bread. Chewy mouthfeel. Light bitter finish. Excellent malty palate. Medium bodied.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2005 Oranger pâle, presque translucide, parsemé d’une ample mousse blanche. Doux arômes de pain, de grains, de beurre, de gazon fraîchement coupé accompagné d’une touche de caramel. En bouche, le grain occupe une grande place initiale pour finalement laisser l’espace aux houblons purement aromatiques. Levuré en bouche, elle nous offre ensuite d’harmonieuses flaveurs d’écorce de citron et d’orange. Texture passablement crémeuse, carbonatation légčrement trop active qui tentent de voler la vedette ŕ la douceur du liquide. Dégusté en fut ŕ la brasserie męme Prague, voyage Europe 2005.

Sigmund (5696) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2005
Draught at the brewpub, in the pleasant company of Robert (dortmunder) and his sister. I also brought back a bottle of this beer and the Cerny/Tmavé which was unavailable on tap while we were there. (The bottled beers were sold in pairs, at an outrageous price by Czech standards - in Norway ALL beer prices are outrageous, so I didn’t mind.) The svetlé is an unfiltered pilsener, golden colour, slightly hazy, moderate head. Moderate hops aroma. Flavour has a herbal character and a dry bitter finish, which makes this beer a lot better than (most) industrial pilseners / pale lagers.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2004
Tap@Novomestsky. Really hazy pale gold appearance. Malts were a little bit sour and butterscotchy, slightly lactic, lightly honeyed, medium bitter saazy hops in the finish, not very exciting, a little bit odd.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2004
Hazy amber coloured brew with a rich malt nose tempered with a hint of lemon. Fairly bitter, malty taste with the lemony hops providing some interest. The finish is malty and slightly bitter. Overpriced for what it is. (Draught in Novomestsky Pivovar, Praha)

Got this bottled at the brewery in Prague: (see photo at upper left). Check out Novomestsky's website to see this place - it's a real Prague institution! Massively bitter with very little aroma or malt backbone. It's a bit like dishwater that has tons and tons of hops added. Extremely crisp and dry, and very herbal. Metallic, like licking a flagpole. Oh yeah, it had a nice, big frothy head at first, but it faded FAST! Thanks to my Prague connection for bringing this to NYC!
